May-Britt Moser (wearing a dress embellished w/ the neurons she discovered) is a pioneer in researching the spatial reasoning powers of the human brain, particularly related to memory; it’s her work in identifying the grid cells that make up the brain’s positioning system that won her the 2014 prize for Physiology and Medicine, along with her husband Edward Moser and their colleague John O’Keefe.
I’m Suzie Sheehy and I’m an accelerator physicist. Advice to my younger self - now I know that lots of different types of people are scientists and that comparing yourself at 16 to some of the greatest scientists in history is rather misguided, to put it mildly.
